  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk {If you are fine with dairy, you can use regular cow milk here, too.}
  • 1/4 cup white sugar
  • 10 tablespoons coconut milk {the canned kind, not the milk substitute kind}
  • 1/2 cup aquafaba {this is the liquid from canned or cooked chickpeas}
  • 1/2 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon turmeric {optional, this is for colour}


  • In a large bowl, combine together the sugar, spices and coconut milk until smooth. Then, whisk in the almond milk until combined.
  • In a second large bowl, whip the aquafaba until it forms soft peaks. 
  • Fold the aquababa into the contents of the first bowl
  • Serve chilled, garnished with more nutmeg.



  • If you are buying canned chickpeas to obtain the aquafaba for this recipe, buy unsalted chickpeas. 
  • Reserve your chickpeas for another recipe. If you don't think you can use them right away, you can freeze them.
  • This recipe makes about 3 1/2 cups but it will deflate a little bit after sitting.
  • If you are OK with dairy, you can substitute regular cow milk for the almond milk.
  • If you only have sweetened plant milk, omit the sugar and add some as needed to achieve desired sweetness level.
